Bulk carriers can now benefit from an Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 bulker-fit configuration, which is specifically adapted to their flow needs. The bulker-fit configuration offers savings in footprint, installation, OPEX and especially CAPEX, yet it retains the high performance, easy operation and global service coverage PureBallast 3 is known for.

Case story: PureBallast 3 means cost-effective compliance for years to come

“OPEX is, of course, very important,” explains Ragnar Johansson. “The purchase price is one thing, but the system will cost money every day. So energy consumption is extremely important.”

PureBallast 3 among the first with Chinese type approval

Now type approved by the China Classification Society, Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 is one of the first global ballast water treatment solutions available to Chinese-flagged vessels. “We will be proud to see PureBallast 3 systems sail under the Chinese flag,” says Peter Sahlén, Head of Alfa Laval PureBallast.

Solutions for tankers

Being specialized for the transport of liquid cargo, tankers often lack a pump room and face highly specific challenges when it comes to installing and operating a ballast water treatment system. PureBallast 3 offers solutions.

Solutions for bulkers

Not only do bulkers differ from each other in size and operating profile, their own ballast water flows may differ between loading and unloading. PureBallast 3 offers the high flexibility to meet any bulker demand.

Solutions for container vessels

Container vessels are far more varied than the containers they carry. The ballast water treatment needs of a small feeder may differ greatly from those of a massive oceangoing vessel, yet PureBallast 3 has answers for both.

Solutions for gas carriers

Gas carriers differ greatly, but they have a common focus on safety for the vessel and crew. UV treatment with Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 avoids corrosion risks and other safety hazards, as well as the hidden costs of other solutions.
